#SDG, #Sensors, #Ibernam

Zaragoza, 9-10th November 2023

Dear IBERNAM-CMC2 Community, IEEE Sensors Council Spain and French Chapters members and researchers,

We are pleased to announce the upcoming celebration of the 11th Franco-Spanish Workshop IBERNAM-CMC2 to be held in Zaragoza on November 9-10th 2023 .

Since 2002, we hold a joint Workshop between IBERNAM and CMC2 (the French thematic network on sensors and microsystems) where we have the opportunity to meet with our colleagues and informally discuss results, collaboration opportunities and future joint actions. The event this year will be in collaboration with the IEEE Sensors Council France Chapter and the IEEE Sensors Council and Systems Council spain Section Joint Chapter that will also commemorate the 10th year since its creation as well as the IEEE Sensors Council 25th anniversary.

The Spanish and French Chapters of the IEEE Sensors Council will sponsor the "Student Paper Contest" that will reimburse the winners for the conference registration fee.

The "Leivmotiv" of this 11th Edition is the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations. As this aspiration is in line with Horizon Europe, we encourage you all to detail the contribution of your idea to the SDGs in your abstract for the organization of our scientific program. The CALL FOR PAPERS is open from September 30th to October 23rd extended to October 27th (use the template). Please, send your abstract (in pdf format) to ibernamzgz@posta.unizar.es indicating your preference Oral/Poster Contribution. The scientific organizing committee will communicate the acceptance of abstract on October 31th.

The Workshop is organized as a collection of invited talks (3), with the participation of IEEE Sensors Council Distinguished Lecturer Giancarlo Fortino, oral communications (17), and a poster session, giving the opportunity to all attendees not to miss anything. Finally, the Workshop also features a social program, offering a unique framework for the exchange of ideas and the establishment of new collaborations.

We will soon share by e-mail more details about the scientific agenda, registration confirmation process, accommodations, as well as the social program.Please, register to receive all the information in your email.

Towards Community-Oriented Wearable Computing Systems: A Paradigm Shift to Monitor and Control Cooperative Groups of Peo

Gartner estimates the global smart wearable computing systems (WCS) market will be worth more than US$100 billion in 2024, with an increasing growth caused by the COVID-19. The industry and public sector are then pushing for innovative WCS solutions with high levels of dependability and trustworthiness that can efficiently operate in increasingly complex scenarios. Great strives have been made to realize WCS for the 24/7 monitoring of single users based on 3-tier architectures involving wearables, edge, and cloud systems. However, new requirements, specifically targeting cooperative multiple users, demands for radically new approaches, as promoted by the community-oriented WCS (CO-WCS). In this keynote, we first provide an overview of WCS based on the SPINE Body of Knowledge research and development (https://projects.dimes.unical.it/spine-bok/). Then, we focus on the requirements of the next-generation CO-WCS based on a use case driven approach. Finally, we will discuss models, architectures and tools that would be needed to implement CO-WCS.

Microchip Technology enabling Rapid Diagnostics for Infectious Diseases – From AMR to COVID-19

Microchip Technology enabling Rapid Diagnostics for Infectious Diseases -From AMR to COVID-19
Seminar abstract:
In the last decade, we have seen a convergence of microelectronics into the world of healthcare providing novel solutions for early detection, diagnosis and therapy of disease. This has been made possible due to the emergence of CMOS technology, allowing fabrication of advanced systems with complete integration of sensors, instrumentation and processing, enabling design of miniaturised medical devices which operate with low-power. This has been specifically beneficial for the application areas of DNA based diagnostics and full genome sequencing, where the implementation of chemical sensors known as Ion-Sensitive Field Effect Transistors (ISFETs) directly in CMOS has enabled the design of large-scale arrays of millions of sensors that can conduct in-parallel detection of nucleic acids. Furthermore, the scaling of CMOS with Moore’s law and the integration capability with microfluidics has enabled the creation of hand-held and portable rapid diagnostic systems for infectious diseases.
In this talk, I present how my lab is advancing the areas of DNA and RNA detection for rapid diagnostics of infectious diseases and Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) through the design of CMOS based Lab-on-Chip systems using ISFETs. I will showcase Lacewing, our latest handheld diagnostic system which is able to rapidly identify bacterial and viral infections in under 30 minutes, communicating results in real-time to the cloud for epidemiological surveillance. Results from our latest trials for detection of Malaria and bacterial resistant infections will be shown in addition to our most recent efforts in tackling the COVID-19 outbreak.


Prof. Pantelis Georgiou received the M.Eng. degree in electrical and electronic engineering and the Ph.D. degree from Imperial College London (ICL), London, U.K., in 2004 and 2008, respectively.

He is currently a Professor of Biomedical Electronics with the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, ICL, where he is also the Head of the Bio- Inspired Metabolic Technology Laboratory, Centre for Bio-Inspired Technology. His research includes bio-inspired circuits and systems, CMOS based Lab-on-Chip technologies, and application of microelectronic technology to create novel medical devices. He has made significant contributions to integrated chemical-sensing systems in CMOS, conducting pioneering work on the development of ISFET sensors, which has enabled applications, such as point-of-care diagnostics and semiconductor genetic sequencing and has also developed the first bio-inspired artificial pancreas for treatment of Type I diabetes using the silicon-beta cell. He received the IET Mike Sergeant Medal of Outstanding Contribution to Engineering in 2013. In 2017, he was also awarded the IEEE Sensors Council Technical Achievement award. He is a member of the IET and serves on the BioCAS and Sensory Systems technical committees of the IEEE CAS Society. He is also on the IEEE Sensors council as a member at large and an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer. He is Co-founder and CEO of ProtonDx, commercialising technologies for rapid diagnostics for infectious diseases.
